“Wonderful Vacation Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We spent 5 nights at this property. Wow! Everything from the lobby to the well appointed rooms was great. The staff was friendly, the grounds are beautiful, and the lazy river and pool are very impressive. This property is definitely on our list as one of the top hotels we have ever stayed in.

My wife and I stayed a few nights here at the JW for a golf getaway. We are loyal to the Ritz Carlton / Marriott brand and were blown away with this JW.

From the moment you check in to the moment you leave the staff was never less than 110% professional, cautious, and extremely eager to please.

The Hotel is immaculate in every sense of the work, from the lobby to the front door of your room. Room were extremely clean and stocked with complimentary water. The beds were as comfortable as could, we had a great nights sleep. We ate onsite and the food was great, and the service was even better. Every waiter at every meal was prompt and eager to ensure our meal was 100% to our liking.

The pool is what closes the deal here. Its amazing. There are several pools that are joined together by a lazy river with waterfalls that surround the entire area. Beautiful, and great for kids.

We've stayed at several Ritz Carltons, and this JW does all the small things right, and goes above and beyond to ensure your stay feels 5 Star. This is a 5 Star property. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: 5 STAR treatment, feels like a RITZ Carlton

JW never seems to disappoint. Very clean and friendly staff. The best thing about JW's is the consistency. We have stayed at some shady places in Orlando but I highly recommend JW if staying in area. Their security is professional and makes you feel safe.

for this beautiful resort. Silver Elite status gave us a 10th floor room with balcony upgrade overlooking the lush pool area and golf course. Superb Bess checked us in. She also offered us either 500 points or free self parking which is normally $18 per day. We did not bring our computer as Internet access would have been an additional $9.95 per day. We were on business. We had dinner at Citron. We also used the walkway between this resort and the Ritz Carlton to enjoy the landscaping and well appointed environment. All four restaurants between these two properties were very expensive but that is to be expected at this level of resort. Complimentary H20 in our room awaited us. Bedding was wonderful. Bathroom was "ginormous" with exceptional amenities. They would even have done a turndown service but we met housekeeping at the door to accept our chocolates and next day weather forecast. We did receive the AARP rate which helped make this property more affordable. Far from the maddening tourist attractions and a welcome respite even though this was a business trip.

This is our new favorite weekend getaway, when you want no theme parks, and just an escape. The property is terrific and the staff is the freindliest and most helpful of any in Orlando. On site eateries and poolside drinks are expensive, but that's to be expected. Rooms are wonderful with very comfy beds. We had a 24th floor room with spectacular view. We'll be back next year! The lazy river pool is top notch. If you can, early Sept after Labor day (we went the weekend after Labor Day) is very uncrowded. Plenty of lounge chairs free poolside, Room rates are the lowest of the year. We scored a flash sale on bookit.com, roon rate of $146 + taxes = $165.

Room Tip: Choose a high up room and enjoy the view from your balcony!

I came to this hotel with a teacher discount. (I work for the School District of Palm Beach County, and some hotels give teachers/workers discounts). It was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the pool was clean. I will certainly come here again, and I'll make sure that I recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Rooms farther from the elevator are alot better.
